Tell us about your PARTNER(S). What did they look like? How well did you know them, had you hooked up before? How/Where did you meet them? How did you feel about them before the hookup? She was an ex, my first real girlfriend in fact. The first person I had sex with. About 5’8, definitely curvy. She was an Amazon when we dated in high school and had become more voluptuous. Tan, smooth skin. Long straight dark hair. Her face was similar to Mira Sorvino, big smile. We had dated for 6 months during junior year. Once we had sex, we went at it like rabbits. At least once a say we found a way. She moved away, I broke up with her after a few months of long distance. Tons of animosity. But years later I college we reconnected via email cordially. She came to town to visit friends and wanted to say hi.

How/where did the hookup BEGIN? What led to it? Was planning involved? Who instigated it? She had been in town a week, we didn’t rush to see each other. But finally had lunch on a Sunday afternoon. Things went great, we were both flirty. I really wanted to see where it could go but she was staying with her friend. That friend hated me. My family was home. I drove her home after and kept hinting, suggesting, probing hamhanded. She wasn’t annoyed, more flattered. But she demurred in the end after teasing her friend may be asleep. When I left I stewed over it. I went out with my girlfriend that night and we had sex and even then I was distracted by the failure. My ex was to leave the next day and I contacted her late and asked if she’d stop by on the way out. There was no rational excuse I could give, but rather than question me she said sure.

What happened DURING the hookup? What sexual behaviors took place (e.g., oral, vaginal, anal, kinky stuff)? How did you feel during it? How did they behave toward you? Were they a good lover? What did you talk about? How did it end? I was confident. I skipped classes that Monday morning and the house was empty. When she came by around 930 I answered the door in just a robe. She laughed and came inside. I asked what she was laughing about and she told me it was that I was SO direct. So I was honest. I said I was really turned on yesterday, it’s been years since we’ve seen each other and the sex was always amazing. I wanted didn’t want to miss the chance. She grinned and nodded and lead me to my room. I started to undress her when we walked in, as I used to years before. We fell real quick into our ways. Kissing, deep passionate, stripping, stroking. She was on top of me, riding as I ran my hands over her body. We changed positions and I was on top, going full out – pulling myself into her with the iron headboard. Without asking I came inside her, I always had. We sank in next to each other for a half-hour, nearly falling asleep. She had a long drive though, so we made our goodbyes.
